Pluralsight Acquires Digital-Tutors

Press Release

April 10, 2014

Salt Lake City – Pluralsight has acquired Oklahoma City-based Digital-Tutors, an online training resource for creative professionals. The $45 million acquisition — Pluralsight's fourth in eight months — marks the company’s debut in the creative space. Digital-Tutors had more than 1,500 creative skills courses, which will double Pluralsight's existing catalog of more than 1,400 developer- and IT-oriented courses.

Pluralsight experienced triple-digit growth in 2013 and is on trajectory to do the same in 2014. In the last eight months, the company acquired three other online learning platforms: PeepCode, a provider of open-source developer courses; Tekpub, a screencast publisher for developers; and TrainSignal, an IT training company that came to Pluralsight in a $23.6 million deal. The Digital-Tutors purchase is Pluralsight's largest to date.

"Bringing Digital-Tutors on board has positioned Pluralsight as a complete solution for professional technology and creative skills training," said Pluralsight CEO and co-founder Aaron Skonnard. "In the competitive e-learning space, where sites like Lynda.com have brought skills training to beginning and mid-level enthusiasts, we are cementing our status as a career catalyst and go-to resource for the serious professional.”

Digital-Tutors is an e-learning platform that provides training for individuals, universities and businesses, including Pixar, DreamWorks, Rockstar Games and Electronic Arts. With creative courses ranging from motion graphics to 3D animation to visualization to digital painting, the company provides training for professionals in the movie, game, AEC and product design, and digital art spaces.

Effective immediately, active customers of both platforms will be able to access the two e-libraries at no additional cost. Digital-Tutors' 30 employees will join the Pluralsight team. In addition, Digital-Tutors CEO and founder Piyush Patel will join Pluralsight as the senior vice president of creative operations.
